Namespace:  KGySoft.CoreLibraries
Assembly:  KGySoft.CoreLibraries (in KGySoft.CoreLibraries.dll) Version: 6.0.0

public static bool TrySetElementAt(
	this IEnumerable collection,
	int index,
	Object? item,
	bool checkReadOnlyAndBounds = true,
	bool throwError = true


Type: System.CollectionsIEnumerable
The collection to set the item in.
Type: SystemInt32
The zero-based index at which item should be set.
Type: SystemObject
The item to be set.
checkReadOnlyAndBounds (Optional)
Type: SystemBoolean
 to return  if the collection is read-only or the index is invalid;  to attempt setting the element without checking the read-only state and bounds. This parameter is optional.
Default value: .
throwError (Optional)
Type: SystemBoolean
 to forward any exception thrown by a found setting member;  to suppress the exceptions thrown by the found setting member and return  on failure. This parameter is optional.
Default value: .

Return Value

Type: Boolean
 if a setting member could be successfully called;  if such member was not found, or checkReadOnlyAndBounds is  and the collection was read-only, or throwError is  and the setting member threw an exception.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IEnumerable. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

The item can be set in the collection if that is either an IList or IListT implementation.

Note Note
If it is known that the collection implements only the supported generic IListT interface, then for better performance use the generic TrySetElementAt<T> overload if possible.
Note Note
This method returns  also for multidimensional arrays.
